Recovery and Reflection, Celebrating the 9/11 Tribute Museum

New York City Fire Museum

Date: Oct 15th

As New York City and the world commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the New York City Fire Museum will present a special exhibition - Recovery and Reflection, Celebrating the 9/11 Tribute Museum. The temporary exhibition will be on display from August 30th to October 15th, 2023.

Recovery and Reflection, Celebrating the 9/11 Tribute Museum will feature 15 panels that were previously on display at the 9/11 Tribute Museum, which closed in August 2022. Spread over four panels are the victims' names; additional panels display photos with quotes from key FDNY members, such as the former New York City Fire Commissioners Daniel Nigro and Sal Cassano, as well as firefighter Lee Ielpi. Visitors also can see a slideshow of photos illustrating the heroic acts of that day and the aftermath, photos of tributes that sprung up around firehouses after 9/11, as well as a short video of retired firefighter Bill Spade, who served with the FDNY from January 1985 to March 2003. Spade is the only Firefighter from Rescue 5 who made it home that day.

Visitors also can pay tribute in the Fire Museum’s permanent 9/11 Memorial Room. The memorial is the first permanent space dedicated to the 343 members of the FDNY members who lost their lives on 9/11. It features a black marble and tile structure with pictures of the firefighters lost in the attacks; cases displaying tools used and items recovered from the Ground Zero recovery effort; and a wall-size timeline chronicling that day’s tragic events.
